To improve access to veterinary care, the Fort Malden Animal Hospital has teamed up with a Canadian veterinarian-led company named Smart.Vet. Smart.Vet allows our clients, access to Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVTs) over the phone when our clinic is closed. These RVTs can speak with you to ascertain the level of care that your pet requires, and will then facilitate scheduling an appointment with one of their licensed Ontario-based veterinarians. If your pet requires critical in-person intervention, the RVT will be able to determine this over the phone and will assist by making arrangements for your pet to be transferred for physical care.
The phone number you will use to access the Smart.Vet RVTs is 647-695-5411. There is no cost for this call or any assistance provided by the RVTs. If you are booked with a virtual veterinarian, there will be a cost for the consultation, with an additional service fee if medication is prescribed.
You also have the ability to book directly with a Smart.Vet veterinarian by visiting https://smartvet.ca/login, and clicking on Register. Once you’ve created an account, you can decide to send in a message or request a phone / video call. Messages are meant for non-urgent cases and will be responded to within 8 hours of submission. When you’ve submitted a phone / video request, a veterinarian will reach out to you as soon as they’re available. Please just wait for a call from 289-768-8784 - this may take more than 20 minutes when we’re experiencing high call volumes.
Once a request has been submitted, you can add additional notes or add images/videos to the consultation for the veterinarian’s reference.
If you have any issues during scheduling, you can send an email to email@example.com.
